The perfect timepiece to mark 175 years of watchmaking in Glashütte: the NOMOS classic Ludwig, a self-winding model, with neomatik date caliber—presented in a limited edition.
For the first time Nomos is making a watch with a date display in Roman numerals and we think that’s a winner – it is great to be different. This is a super-slim watch has an auto movement that is just 3.6mm thick. That means the watch is 7.7mm thick and has a 41mm case size. The blue-tempered leaf hands and railroad track motif around the chapter ring add classic design cues that make this an excellent dress watch.
The top of the range costs over £3300, but there is an entry-level Ludwig Limited Edition at £1800. What do you lose out on? No date and it’s a hand-winding mechanical, not an auto – arguably not as collectable in the long run.
We love any watch brand that makes movements in-house and Nomos also claim that 95% of components are sourced locally, which cuts down on the environment footprint too. More info here.
